Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags program

Tokens for Bags® Charities Fall 2016

Every six months we support local charities through our Tokens for Bags® program. Shoppers are encouraged to accept a token instead of a bag for purchases and we donate five cents (the cost of the bag) to a charity of the customer’s choice. Since 1994, we have raised over $656,798 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations through our Tokens for Bags® program, saving 13.1 million bags from polluting the environment.

Find your local Buffalo Exchange below and check out the charities you can give back to.

Every year we team up with the awesome Sonic Reducer Stage and pass out TONS of Buffalo goodies to all the pride-goers. Check out our favorite moments from Pride 2016!

Fashion knows no gender! Men, women, and people alike shop our racks, eager to add pieces to their wardrobe. They look for the “Peace and Love” fashion trend taking cues from the 70s. Vintage Levis, western button-ups, suede vests, and cowboy boots are no longer for costume parties, they are an everyday staple. Vintage chic not your thing? Norm core and casual basics are also a lively, but understated trend. Match oversized men’s tees and tapered shirts to boyfriend pants or fitted men’s denim. Stop into your local Buffalo Exchange and celebrate style!

Kodachrome: Midsummer

Midsummer Style

Check out this photo shoot inspired by Midsummer, a European celebration of summer solstice. At the solstice girls pick bundles of different flowers that they then weave into a wreath for their head. At night the wreath is placed under their pillow with dreams of their future husband to follow. Clothing for this shoot was provided by Buffalo Exchange San Francisco and starring one of our own, Gabrielle Jones.

Trend Tracker: The Man Purse

A trend I noticed on the menswear runway for this season is the “man bag”. These aren’t your typical messenger bags or laptop bags; these are chic, masculine, and functional accessories of the season. Let’s face it guys, just because your girlfriend carries a duffle bag around as a purse doesn’t mean that she wants to carry your junk around in it!Full Story
